Re: WAX218PA Firmware Updates

What's the difference between MIB and Firmware?

Looks like the firmware isn't compatible. Any advice?

Re: WAX218PA Firmware Updates

MIB is more for rolling it out to your whole system. Use the firmware image. 

Try an earlier version instead of jumping to the latest.
